    Last year, I called Crusader Kings 2 the best game that Paradox had ever produced. Now it is joined by Europa Universalis 4.

    Bayonetta 2 is nothing less than the best game in its genre, and it’s a solid reason to buy a Wii U.

    The gods of fighting games love those who are strong and stylish, and that’s what CPEX is all about.

    It took CD Projekt RED three attempts to create an epic masterpiece. You will laugh, feel sorrow, and reflect on important matters in-between killing hundreds of monsters in a spectacular fashion. You will embark on a long, wild adventure tempted by the myriads of tantalizing “?” signs scattered across the map. In other words, I know what you’ll be doing this summer.

    I fell in love with Team Fortress 2 because in that game, you win by being smart and considerate instead of quickly sniping off everyone you see. Overwatch improves on this concept tenfold.

    The most amazing thing about this criminal saga is not only its scale, but that it perfectly works on several levels. Spine-tingling driving, fun missions, excellent dialogue, fully fleshed characters, vicious satire on pretty much everything… One play-through is not enough to appreciate GTA 5 in all its multi-layered glory.

    Blood and Wine should be used as an interactive workshop for other developers to show them how to create awesome game expansions.

    Sons of Abraham integrates into the original game so seamlessly that it feels like it has always been there.
    • 84 Metascore

    This game will charm you as soon as you will see its loading screens and listen to first heavy metal chords of its awesome soundtrack.

    Last year, Expeditions: Conquistador and Shadowrun Returns proved that Kickstarter can help create a good RPG. But The Banner Saga is not just good – it’s amazing.

    Basically, it’s the second full-length movie based on South Park, now fully interactive. Even bigger, longer and uncut.

    The first expansion to The Witcher 3: Wild Heart is hands down the best expansion of this year.
    • 88 Metascore

    It would have been cool if every nation added in The Old Gods got the same detailed treatment as the ones from the Legacy of Rome expansion, but still, this is a fascinating journey into the unforgiving Dark Ages.

    Road Not Taken is an endless stream of puzzles and a mysterious world which you just can’t stop exploring. Every new secret you solve brings up new exciting questions.

    Aftermath is the best out of all Battlefield 3 DLCs. Its maps tend to favor infantry, but the experience is as tense as ever.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Originality, tactical depth, variety — you’ll find them plenty in Crypt of the NecroDancer. ‘90’ is not only a score but the minimum amount of hours you’ll spend obsessing over this game.

    Hearts of Iron 4 in one word is "optimization". There is now proper gameplay mechanics instead of duct-taped hacks and artificial restrictions seen in previous installments; the AI, freed from dozens of scripts, now thinks and acts on its own, while the game itself is more accessible and comprehensible, but still offers the same depth.

    At first glance, The Age of Decadence is a walking dinosaur, but awesome RPGs like this are too rare to ignore them.
    • 82 Metascore

    Fisher’s annoyingly sulky character, questionable controls when it comes to grabbing people next to doors, traditionally daft ending level and the buggy Uplay services – these are pretty much all the sins of Blacklist. They can be easily forgiven because the rest of the game is stealth action goodness.

    Rainbow Six: Siege is a smart, truly unique action game.
    • 78 Metascore

    Chaos on Deponia is not an ideal adventure game, but it is totally worthy of being called a true successor to Monkey Island.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 87 Critic Score
    Accompanied by an 80s horror movie soundtrack, death screams and sounds of gunshots, a merciless zombie horde shambles through the darkened streets, ready to win over your hearts.

    Right now, Endless Legend is already much more balanced and fun than its direct competitor, Age of Wonders 3.

    Door Kickers is perfect lunch-break entertainment, and it’s immensely addictive.

    This NBA 2K is surely rife for nitpicking. Annoying update notifications, clunky menus, AI blunders, Spike Lee’s unnecessary meddling with the well-oiled machine of MyCareer, a rough Gauntlet mode, and traditional connectivity problems. But still, even with all that, NBA 2K16 is like a complex, mesmerizing painting.

    Chaos Reborn is a very accessible strategy game. It will take you just half an hour to learn all of its secrets. Thanks to simple rules, a turn lasts just a few seconds, and the entire session usually ends in 10 minutes or less. But you will be glued to this game for hours.

    Goodbye Deponia is a wild rollercoaster ride - a bigger, smarter and funnier adventure than the previous Deponia games. It will earn a place in your heart even after it totally fails to deliver a proper cathartic ending.

    The boring misadventures of US marines in China is nothing more than a six-hour tutorial for those who don’t want to jump into multiplayer head first. But to hell with the stupid story – Battlefield 4 delivers the best online battles out there right now, with amazing graphics to boot.

    Broken Age looks, sounds and plays so great that you can recommend it to anyone.
    • 79 Metascore

    Amazingly beautiful tracks where you race, swim and fly, sometimes changing the level as you progress through it, are what makes this game great.
